Racquel is sharing how to make chocolate dipped clementine hearts. These would make a fun snack or treat for kids on Valentine’s Day!
These chocolate dipped clementine hearts are easy to make. If you wanted to be super healthy, you could stop after cutting the clementine wedges and using toothpicks to create hearts, but even when dipped in dark chocolate these Valentine’s treats are healthier than most other candy hearts.
After the clementines are peeled and sectioned, you cut each slice as shown above and connect with toothpick as shown below.
Using a spoon, carefully dip and coat half of the Clementine heart. Set on parchment paper and allow chocolate to completely set.
Drizzle a small amount of the melted chocolate at the ends of the toothpicks to create an “arrow” look.
Serve and enjoy!
